Conservative cuts have left our GP surgeries and hospitals under-staffed and under-resourced. Health care is a human right – but across the UK there aren’t enough doctors, there aren’t enough nurses, and there aren’t enough appointments. The Liberal Democrats demand better for the NHS, and that’s why I’m calling on the government to finally tackle the outrageous under-funding of our health service.
The Liberal Democrats know how important the NHS is, and realise that people are prepared to pay taxes if it means that a good quality health service is available to them and their loved ones when they need it. A Lib Dem government would put a penny on income tax, guaranteed to go to the NHS.
If you agree that our health service deserves better, then please add your voice to our campaign by signing the petition below.
We, the undersigned, call on the government to properly fund our NHS so that it’s there when we need it; and to look at fairer ways to pay for services, such as putting a penny on income tax guaranteed to go to the NHS.
